Well, today’s going to be stupidly hot in Denver today, according to the National Weather Service. The high is 96 degrees with nary a cloud in sight. It’s so hot that the weather service is advising you to drink water and wear light-colored clothing, and don’t forget about your kids and pets.

That may improve slightly tomorrow, when it’s 95 degrees but also cloudy here, although it may also end up hotter. After that, temperatures will cool throughout this short work week to about 89 by Saturday.

There’s very little precipitation on the radar, except for maybe Friday and Saturday.
